Subject: Performance gets better as it goes along
This famous recording starts off somewhat slow, lacking in both passion and vitality. The performance improves in each successive movement. The finale and especially the gorgeous soft ending are the best. Well worth downloading, especially if you have never heard this masterpiece.
